Fight Against Illegal Water Connection

People can survive without electricity but never with no water.
Still, water level in some major dams in the Philippines are not enough to supply the increasing needs of growing population in Metro Manila.
This is why it is so important for every one of us to preserve water and stop the waste before it’s too late, especially that we are now experiencing climate change due to global warming.
Maynilad Water Services, Inc. encouraged its consumers in the West Zone of Greater Manila Area to protect the water supply and combat water loss as they launched the Sugpuin ang Ilegal na Koneksyon AgaD (SIKAD) program.
By simply reporting to them the illegal connections of commercial and industrial establishments, the tipster could earn a minimum of P15,000 or go as high as P120,000 as reward. The incentive is determined by how big is the under-collection charge of the reported illegal connection.

“We want to tap into the Filipino’s sense of heroism.  Water is a precious resource. We need to make sure it is utilized efficiently and managed in an optimal manner.  The campaign to eradicate illegal connections plays a big part in making sure this happens,” said Christopher J. Lichauco, head of Business Area Operations of Maynilad.
 
The campaign will run for six months, from April 1 to September 30, 2011.  It will cover commercial and industrial establishments having any of these illegality types: tampered meters, by-pass connections, double tapping, and unregistered connections.
 
For more information about the SIKAD program, Maynilad encourages the public to call its Customer Service Department at 981-3485 or 0928-5011926.

    Hay parang kuryente, mahirap masugpo yung mga nagnanakaw ng tubig. Pero sana masugpo naman yung mga ilegal na koneksyon. Sayang wala ako maisusumbong, malaki pa naman ang bayad hehe

    Sana maayos ito, unfair kasi sa mga nagbabayad. Hindi naman to loss ng Maynilad since pumapatak sya sa metro ng ibang tao. Ang kawawa yung consumers na nagbabayad.
